The people at Upper Chattahoochee Riverkeeper (UCR), an organization dedicated to the conservation and protection of Atlanta's Chattahoochee River, are holding a contest to design their organization's new T-shirt.
Contest rules are simple: designs should illustrate the importance of protecting the Chattahoochee, the design should be suitable for all ages, and be fun and unique. Upload designs to the UCR's Facebook page and whichever three designs have the most 'likes' on Facebook by the end of Jan. will become the finalists. Then a panel of UCR members and Atlanta celebrity judges will determine the winning design on Feb. 3.
The grand prize design winner will receive six VIP tickets and a private cabana for his or her guests at the 16th Annual River Revival on May 4 at Park Tavern with food and drink included, the winner and guests will receive a one-year membership to UCR and a few of tees printed with the winning design.
Make it work people!
Check out each of the finalist's proposed designs below. By the looks of it, results won't be as dismal as another recent statewide crowd-sourced design project. Which is good for the Silverbacks, 'cause we're always ready with suggestions.
Like-Voting continues through Sept. 22.
No juries, no boards and no professionals will meddle with the outcomes; the winner will be selected based on the number of "likes" on the Silverbacks’ official Facebook page.
The uniform template can be downloaded from the Silverback's facebook page. Designs should be submitted via e-mail to firstname.lastname@example.org. Beginning August 1 entries will be added to a photo album on the team’s Facebook page and let the "likes" battle begin.
Each of the five finalists from the Facebook battle fields will receive two season tickets for 2012. And the winner? Nothing less than a four-day, three-night trip to Bogotá, Colombia, where he or she can witness the idea turn to reality at the headquarters of the team's uniform manufacturer. The winner will be formally announced at halftime of the Silverbacks’ game on September 24.
